The cyclone warning signals was upgraded straight from 4 to "mohabipod" warning 10 in mongla, 9 in ctg and cox's bazar.

Ctg port has declared emergency 4- the highest of its emergency warning.

Dhaka weather's been "cold" since the evening.

It really doesnt look good.

They cyclone, which is about 700 miles away from ctg is approaching fast, and within 74 miles of the "eye"..it has a gust wind upto 200 km/hr.

Expected to pass over khulna, barisal area sometimes tomorrow around 2 in the afternoon.

im keeping an eye on the tele for further development.
i'll keep you guys posted if there is any, till i hit the bed.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajiun.
We belong to you and we will return to you.

Forgive us all.

I hope Sidr moves a little to left and hit the forrest instead of the locality. I have seen the '90-91 destruction. Hopefully this will not be a similar magnitude.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajiun.

May Allah save us all from all natural disasters.

I hope and pray Sidr gets weakened before hitting the land areas of India or Bangladesh.

That sounds very good...

I remember the 91 jolochchash. We lost many family relatives; our gramer bari is Sandweep, kind of THE PLACE where it hit the hardest.

Things have changed a lot ever since then. Hopefully there will not be any casualties. Inshallah.

I hope nothing happens like the previous one. Probably it was in early 90s. It was so ugly.

That's what I am hoping, there should be minimal causality this time. Everybody knows about this deadly cyclone...

Default Storm lashes Bangladesh island, thousands evacuated

By Anis Ahmed DHAKA (Reuters) - Strong winds lashed Bangladesh's Saint Martin's island on Thursday, ripping off tin roofs from houses and uprooting trees, as tens of thousands of mainlanders were evacuated to shelters ahead of a severe cyclone.
The winds began hitting the island, just off the country's southeastern tip of Teknaf, with a speed of about 100 kph (60 mph) from around noon, and gained strength gradually, said Moulvi Feroze Ahmed, a local government official.
"From my window, I can see tins ripped off the roofs and tree branches flying under the sky covered with thick clouds," Feroze told Reuters.
"It looks like the sea is coming to grab us," he said. "It has been rough with high waves. The storm has already triggered a three feet (one meter) high water surge."
Some 6,000 residents and nearly 70 tourists on the island had been evacuated to higher land, Feroze said.
Earlier, officials said the storm, classified category 4 by the weather tracker Tropical Storm Risk, would likely make landfall in Bangladesh, any time from around 2 p.m. (3 a.m. EST) with winds of more than 210 kph (130 mph).
Officials at Cox's Bazar, a popular tourist destination, said they had evacuated nearly 200,000 people to about 600 government and private shelters and asked others to move on their own.
"The shifting process is continuing," said Sajjadul Hasan, chief of the Cox's Bazar district administration. People heading for shelters were taking food, clothes and their cattle with them.
Storms batter the poor south Asian country every year, killing hundreds of people. A severe storm killed more than half a million people in 1970, while a 1991 storm killed 143,000 people and destroyed thousands of properties.
Nearly 10 million Bangladeshis live on the coastlines which usually takes the brunt of the cyclones but the areas have shelters for around only half a million.
Volunteers of the Cyclone Preparedness Centre were moving through villages, alerting people on loudspeakers about the impending danger.
hittagong and Mongla ports have suspended operations since Wednesday and moved ships to safer areas, port officials said. The Chittagong airport also suspended flights and moved planes to safer places, officials said. All schools and colleges in Chittagong and other towns in the storm's path have been shut down, they added.
Fishing trawlers have been asked to return to harbors immediately, fishing community leaders in Cox's Bazar said.
The storm may also hit parts of eastern India and Myanmar, meteorological officials said.
UNUSUAL CALM
In Chittagong, officials said they were worried by the unusual calm before the storm.
"This suggests the core of the storm has been static, but may suddenly move with super speed before it finally slams the shores," a meteorological official said.
The Bangladesh Meteorology Department raised danger signal number 10, the highest, at Mongla, Bangladesh's second main sea port, and number 9 at Chittagong and Cox's Bazar.
Officials said the storm was also expected to hit the eastern Indian coast as well as Sittewe in Myanmar.
The storm lay 530 km south of Kolkata, the capital of India's West Bengal state, on Thursday.
"The storm will hit the West Bengal coast around midnight with wind speed up to 200 km per hour," B.P. Yadav, a senior weather official, said in New Delhi.
"We have suggested evacuation of people from the region," he added.

Really worried to see the scenario of Saint Martins and Cox's Bazar which are far away from the original path of Sidr, only God knows what's happening in the coastal villages of Bagherhat, Patuakhali and Sundarbans where the storm will hit directly.

May Allah help the poor people of India and Bangladesh. It's looking very scary at the moment.

Really really worried for my family and friends back home. I am from Sitakunda/Chittagong, Though our house is few miles away I have got friends and family living not far from the coast. In Kumira or Vatiary if the water rises like 91, Allah help us.

I pray for our country and the lives of all the poor and helpless people in the region. I hope the gov't and army is taking every necessary step to evacuate these people and prepare for relief efforts. May Allah help us.
